Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Missouri
Played with 3 of my family. We had a great round of golf. Course was in good shape - hard and fast. Staff was helpful and friendly. Course is scenic with lots of elevation changes. Lots of old school touches from the past with newer architectural changes. Course gets a lot of play - greens had just been punched and hadn't been topdressed with sand so putting was an adventure! Overall- very playable trending to the "easy" as evidenced by the Course rating.
Always Exceeds Your Expectations
I played the Dogwood/Redbud courses. I like these 2 nines the best because of the different type of holes. The Hawthorne nine is completely flat.
For a city municipal course that gets plenty of play, this course always exceeds your expectations. They hold numerous tournaments at this course and they have the planning/administration of tournaments down to a science.
I noticed they cut some of the vegetation in front of the tee boxes to open up the beauty of the holes. Well done.
Thank you for taking the time to review us. Hope to see you again soon!
Thank you David for your 5 star review. We are happy to see that you had a good experience with us. Looking forward to having you back soon!
Thank you Danny for the 5 stars. We hope you to see you again soon!
Challenging Course with beautiful elevations
Found the course challenging witth lots of hills, sand traps and other hazards. Nice looking course with fantastic elevations with view of the city. The course play started out quite well but seemed to slow down as the day went on.
Overall a nice experience, but would need to play the course a few times to get used to the layout.
Thank you for the kind words. We are happy you enjoyed the courses. Hope to see you again soon!
Course Gets Plenty Of Play, Always In Decent Shape
It always amazes me how much play the Forest Park Golf Courses get and the course is always is good shape. They are a very well-organized unit there also.
I played the Dogwood/Hawthorne nines. Dogwood starts out hilly on the first 3 holes and then it is flat for the remainder. The Hawthorne nine is completely flat.
The only complaints I have of the course is the high weeds/native grass that is in front of the holes. Really takes away from the beauty of the holes and makes the hole a blind shot. Examples are: Dogwood 7, 8, Hawthorne 2 & 5.
I thought the price of $68 was on the high side. I can play Spencer T. Olin in the $50 range and the best course in the area (Annbriar) for $75.
They still use the the small flag on the flagstick to indicate front, middle or back. Please go with a colored flagstick flag approach, like most courses do,
Thank you for the review. We will share your feedback with our team. Look forward to seeing you again soon.
Great City Golf
Beyond the friendly staff and pristine facilities, the course offers lush fairways, well maintained tee boxes, and fast greens that make you work! The layout on any of the three 9hole courses is varied as well as interesting . Great views of the park and city await. Pre 7am tee off is a plus!
Thank you so much for all the nice comments and review. We hope to see you again soon.
Good but overscheduled public course
Tee times are always booked back to back to back here, leading to some bunching up if any group along the line has a bad hole. Other than that, a good public course with multiple options
Enjoyed this 9
Played it as front nine and it was a good challenge, especially the way I hit the ball@
Greens had been aerated recently, as what happens this time of year, so played 2 putt maximum, which occasionally do in this situation .
Have always enjoyed Forest Park
First posting round of the season, and Forest Park is still very enjoyable. It is booked up tight and there are plenty of outsiders walking the course. Grens are normally slower, but not unusual for the amount of play they get. Zosia is not in yet, but it should green in the coming month.
